Look into details
We are all well aware of the COVID-19 crisis, and we urgently need your help. Of utmost importance to most of us is getting back to some sense of normalcy, so our economy can resume, so people can go back to work and we have no more deaths. What has been sorely lacking in the disseminated public information is critical data on how we, in Colorado, are making progress. I’ve already had two friends die from this virus — I want to be assured that, as we lift various restrictions, we are making sound decisions.
I would like for you to report to your readers on the numbers needed and numbers received of oxygen ventilators, N95 face masks, testing kits and PPE.
If you provide us with that data, your readers will feel more informed on things that are key to handling the sick and dying as well as give us confidence that our medical staffs are protected and well prepared.
As recommended by the American Enterprise Institute, we also need you to report regularly on the four key recovery goals for Colorado:
1. Are Colorado hospitals able to safely treat all patents requiring hospitalization, without resorting to crisis standards of care?
2. Is Colorado able to test everyone who has symptoms?
3. Is Colorado able to conduct and report on monitoring of confirmed cases and contacts?
4. Colorado must have a sustained reduction in cases for at least 14 days.
Even though the virus is not over, providing your readers with correct and pertinent information will greatly alleviate our anxiety, settle the markets and hopefully give us confidence that we can soon start to recover and that our plans to reopen Colorado businesses are based on scientific facts and data — not on political pressure.
